Still chugging through

Sorry about the hiatus, but there's really nothing new to report since my last post. Nothing that I want to talk about here anyway. In all honesty, it's been a pretty crappy summer. But that's all I'll say about that. I still don't know what I'm doing this fall, but if I ever figure it out I'll let you know. I do know that my picture is now up at the Buffalo Wild Wings in St. Cloud because I can eat 12 'Blazin' chicken wings in 6 minutes. So there's some sort of accomplishment. I'll take what I can get.

Broken and Frozen

"The broken clock is a comfort, it helps me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow from stealing all my time
I am here still waiting though i still have my doubts
I am damaged at best, like you've already figured out."

Thank you, Lifehouse, for contributing to the Song of Kristin's Life right now. I couldn't think of a better way to say it. Question of the day: Is it possible for someone to break your heart even if they never had it to begin with? Just a little thought to munch on.

In other news, my wittle baby bwother is graduating in less than a month! Yikes! It's weird how time goes too slow in some parts of your life, and too fast with other parts. For the longest time it seems like I've been frozen in place, while everyone else around me leads a fast, changing and glorious life. Sure I've changed and grown some, but it hasn't been very fun. But I digress. God has something/someone in store for me, and I guess I can wait a little longer...

That's about it. A blog post. I didn't even make cookies this year. I guess the tuba is now officially in retirement.

Since I'm not going to school right now, I need to find other ways to relieve my procrastination needs. How about not going to bed? I really should be sleeping right now, because I work early tomorrow. But I can't bring myself to do it. Which maybe is okay, because as of recent I've been sleeping way too much. I guess I'm also still up 'cause I'm kinda excited, though I'm not really sure about what. I just found out that one of my high school friends who had been going out with this girl for a long time finally got engaged, so that makes me happy. Not like I don't have enough married friends, but I'm happy to celebrate with them. And while still dreaming about my future, I'm finally starting to realize how lucky I am to be single. Especially how it's kept me safe from all those unhealthy relationships that so many people get into these days. Most of my friends have great relationships, and I respect that. But I believe it is very easy to get caught in relationships that end up causing more trouble than they're worth. Just a quick thought. In other life stories, I went to a salsa dance Friday night and decided that dancing should be my new thing. I don't know how long it will last, but I'm definitely looking for somewhere to get lessons. Because Lord knows, I'm gonna need a lot of them.

In dedication.

I look deep down inside you
and end up facing a mirror
I see a small, scared girl beside me
Holding all my thoughts, my pains, and my fears.

We are more than just a raindrop
If all these people were the sea.
I want to share how much God loves you
but first I have to believe that truth for me.

He says He hears your truest feelings
He's going to show you that you're not alone.
He needs and wants to share His healing
He loves you more than any person has ever known.

You say you don't see where I'm headed,
Well, I'm just trying to explain
how through all the thousand differences
I see one similar refrain.

And though we still might be like strangers,
In my heart we seem so close
'cause we're all looking for the same real thing
and it's acceptance that we need the most.

He says He hears your truest feelings
He's going to show you that you're not alone.
He needs and wants to share His healing
He loves you more than any person has ever known.

This is a song/poem/whatever I wrote the other day while thinking about someone I know. It was just one of those moments where you're so satisfied with God's love you wonder how anyone could ever reject Him. I pray that you'll find this pure and unrelenting satisfaction too.

Let it snow!!!

Okay, so I see I've been updating about once a month and it hasn't been about anything too grand. But for all practical purposes, nothing in my life has been very grand either. And even if it was, would I waste time writing about it in a public blog that nobody reads anyway?? Hahah.

WAIT! THIS JUST IN! An exciting update from the life of Kristin!! Today she went to her first garage sale of the 2009 season! And she bought a SLED for $1 !!! Now I'm just waiting for it to snow again. (Wouldn't be surprising here in Minnesota). I'm keeping my wishes quiet though, in fear I'll be flogged by other Minnesotans who are enjoying the hot, balmy 45 degree weather we're having right now.

My heart and soul are crushed

I have a sad story: I can't sing. Not even in my dreams.

So I was getting ready for bed last night and thinking about reading because it wasn't that late. But I kinda had a headache so I ended up resting my head on my pillow and...yeah, falling asleep. It was a cool dream though. My life was apparently a musical, and I burst out singing and dancing in class. It was awesome. Until I saw the horrified and disgusted faces all around me. I couldn't hit a note. I know I'm not very good at singing in real life. But I am pretty disappointed that I can't in my dreams, either.
